Strawberries on a Green Cloth

12"x16" Watercolor Painting on 300lb Arches Paper

A watercolor painting of two summer ripe strawberries on a table covered with an open weave green cloth.

The contrast of textures caught my eye.

The strawberry is many, many layers of very thin paint. The contrasting black background was created using 2 layers of paint as thick as whipped cream, on the white paper.
